We are at our best when you are at your best: autonomy and empowerment
I enjoy a great deal of autonomy and empowerment in my role with Philips and in return, I too, empower my team to make decisions for the benefit of the business.
I came to Philips after several years of working very long hours and that left very little time for my family. I found Philips to be much more supportive in encouraging a proper work-life balance. It is especially important me with my busy travel schedule and I’ve four children. Finding time for them will always be a challenge. Although I am still busy with work, I appreciate that I do get to spend more time with my family these days compared with the past. This is in part due to the autonomy that I am given; which helps me to better manage my time.
I am constantly amazed by the people working around me and I feel that we are all driven by the same desire to help improve the lives of others. As I watch my children grow up, I can only hope that one day, they too will be filled by the same desire to help improve the lives of others around them.
